Peacock Automotive Announces Acquisition of Savannah Hyundai

(SAVANNAH, GA) Peacock Automotive has announced it bought the Savannah Hyundai dealership at 7011 Abercorn Street from previous owner Mark Medinger on Nov. 8. With the addition of the new Peacock Hyundai Savannah, Peacock Automotive has expanded its Savannah footprint to cover more than 15 acres with four conveniently located dealerships.

“We have owned the Hyundai dealership in the Bluffton, S.C., area since 2006,” said Warner Peacock, President and CEO of Peacock Automotive. “We like the brand and like working with this manufacturer, which is known for offering a 10-year, 100-thousand-mile warranty. The Savannah Hyundai location is also perfect for us, as it is next to our other properties in Savannah.”

Peacock Hyundai of Savannah has approximately 30,000 square feet, including a service department, used car facility and new car facility. It’s located next to Peacock Automotive’s Savannah Volkswagen, Savannah Fiat and Alfa Romeo of Savannah dealerships.

“This new acquisition is now part of the Peacock Automotive family, so customers will receive the same great treatment, service and selection that they receive at all of our other dealerships,” Peacock said. “We want our customers to have the best experience possible when buying or servicing their vehicles, and Hyundai will embrace this as well. Our No. 1 goal is zero dissatisfied customers.”

The Hyundai dealership was updated recently to meet the car manufacturer’s corporate identity standards and to better serve customers. Current employees will stay with the Peacock Automotive group. Overall, the firm will add 60 jobs to its roster of about 600 people employed at its 20 automotive franchises in Georgia, South Carolina and Florida. The company is headquartered at the Peacock Auto Mall at the I-95 Hilton Head Island gateway near Bluffton, S.C.

Southern Motors Acura Hosts Grand Opening for New Dealership on Chatham Parkway

Southern Motors Acura Hosts Grand Opening for New Dealership on Chatham Parkway
Public Invited to Join the Celebration Through Car Giveaway

(SAVANNAH, GA) Southern Motors Acura invites the public to join them at the grand opening of their new dealership at 102 Park of Commerce Dr. on Chatham Parkway on Saturday, Nov. 18, from 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

As part of the celebration, one visitor will go home with a free two-year lease on a new Southern Motors Acura ILX.

The new outlet, with a 32,000-square-foot showroom, will offer new and used car sales and customer service while Southern Motors’ current location, which has been on Broughton Street for 88 years, will continue to provide service for downtown customers.

“We are thrilled with this expansive new building and footprint, which will allow us to grow and support our community,” said Ross Kaminsky, Southern Motors co-owner general manager. “And our customers can expect the same great service they are used to from one of the oldest family run dealerships in the area.”

The new showroom was designed by Lynch Associate Architects; JTVS Builders served as the general contractor.

Founded in 1929 by Julius Kaminsky, Southern Motors is a third-generation family owned and operated business.

The Kaminsky family believes in their city and feels it is important to show support through numerous charities and investments.

As part of that effort, a percentage of every car sold at Southern Motors benefits Hospice Savannah’s Camp Aloha. Weekend Camp Aloha is for children ages 6-17 who have experienced the death of a loved one within the previous 24 months. The annual camp provides structured activities and plays to help the children realize they are not alone in their grief.

To enter the contest for a new Acura, submit a photo of your current ride to http://savannahnow.com/SMAcuraGiveaway#/gallery/ by Monday, Nov. 13, at 11:59 p.m.
Finalists will be personally invited to attend the grand opening.

Landon Peacock Named Open Your Heart Chair of the Southern Coast Heart Ball

Landon Peacock Named Open Your Heart Chair of the Southern Coast Heart Ball
The American Heart Association Celebrates 21st Annual Heart Ball

(JASPER CO.) The American Heart Association is proud to announce Landon Peacock will be the Open Your Heart Chair of the 21st annual Heart Ball of the Southern Coast. The Heart Ball is to be held on Saturday, February 3, 2018, at the Westin Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa.

In his role as Chair, Landon will work diligently to raise funds to fight cardiovascular disease and stroke in our community. This cause is very special to Landon because he experienced a traumatic cardiac event less than a decade ago. Seven years ago on Christmas morning, he was rushed to the hospital where a physician diagnosed him with a 90 percent blockage in his LAD artery. This blockage was later discovered to be caused by a blood clot that was formed through an autoimmune disease called Anti-Phospholipid Syndrome.

Although Landon has fully recovered, he wants to raise awareness that people in our community are at risk of developing heart issues and need the American Heart Association’s help. “The Open Your Heart campaign brings awareness and raises money for the fight against the nation’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers — heart disease and stroke. Any donation received will be used for the fight against such diseases. As someone who has experienced heart issues, I know firsthand that the crucial work done by the American Heart Association can have an impact toward saving lives and improving our community’s health. Together, we can help save the lives of many,” said Landon.

To find out how to make an Open Your Heart donation or to purchase tickets for next year’s Heart Ball, please contact Carla Raines at 843-540-6338, or visit our website at southerncoastheartball.heart.org.

About the American Heart Association 
The American Heart Association is devoted to saving people from heart disease and stroke –  the two leading causes of death in the world. We team with millions of volunteers to fund innovative research, fight for stronger public health policies, and provide lifesaving tools and information to prevent and treat these diseases.
